Matilda {sneak peek}

Such a lovely baby … and so very, very awake!

Here’s a quick sneak peek for gorgeous baby Mathilda’s parents …

And wouldn’t you believe it … just as I was packing up my things, Mathilda gently fell asleep … thanks so much to mum and dad for making it such a fun shoot on such a rainy day! Online gallery will be open very soon.

Hadlow Manor {wedding fair}

What an amazing day! So many happy and excited brides-to-be and their fiances and/or friends! The sun shone on Hadlow Manor and in excess of 100 brides came through the door.

If you are one of the brides who picked up my card or stopped by for a chat, do please get in touch so that we can discuss your plans further. As an additional incentive, I will be offering 10% off all packages to brides who book me as a result of the wedding fair. Just tell me the colour of my promotional giveaway pens to secure the booking.

There are certain dates in the wedding year which are very popular with couples, especially those during half term and school holidays and the peak summer months. If you are planning a summer wedding in 2012, please don’t delay in finding your key suppliers otherwise you could be disappointed to find that they are already booked.

Do drop me an email sam@samanthajonesphotography.co.uk, give me a call 07786 314973 and check out my website www.samanthajonesphotography.co.uk.

If you missed the chance to meet me in person at Hadlow Manor, don’t forget that I will be exhibiting at the Pines Calyx this coming Sunday, 27 March, more details in my post here: Pines Calyx wedding fair.

Birthday party photoshoot {sneak peek}

What a fun way to spend a couple of hours … gorgeous birthday girl Francesca with her three friends … all vying to be the next “Top Model”! Check out the sneak peek below …

The girls were great fun and very creative. Which makes for some super photos! Lucky birthday girl Francesca will receive an album made up of images of her choice from the online gallery which will go live in the next few days. What a great way to remember your birthday!

If you are interested in booking a birthday party photoshoot with me, more details on pricing can be found on my website: www.samanthajonesphotography.co.uk and you can drop me an email sam@samanthajonesphotography.co.uk. It’s a great and unusual way of entertaining your children … especially if they have “Top Model” tendencies!

If you want to meet me in person {upcoming wedding fairs}

Face-to-face meetings really work for me. Email is something that we can all hide behind and I love hearing about wedding plans and hopes and dreams and desires of brides-to-be.

Even if you are not quite ready to book your wedding photographer, come along, meet me in person and look at the beautiful albums and canvases that I will have on display. We can easily schedule a further meeting to discuss all of your plans for your wedding day. There is no commitment, just a chat over coffee.

To that end, I am pleased to announce that I will be standing at two wedding fairs in March as follows:

Sunday 20 March 2011 – Hadlow Manor

I will be in the preferred suppliers area at Hadlow Manor which is near Tonbridge. Entrance is free and the fair opens at 10.30am. You can find more details here). And you can see images of a photoshoot that I recently had at Hadlow Manor on a separate post on my blog here.

Sunday 27 March 2011 – The Pines Calyx

I am one of three preferred suppliers for photography at this beautiful eco-friendly wedding venue in St Margarets Bay in Dover. I am photographing a September wedding there and very much hope that the weather is as glorious as when I shot these images pictures at Pines Calyx wedding venue. You can find more details about the wedding open day by clicking here.

Is it too late to book if I am getting married in 2011?

I do have some availability remaining for 2011 but the key dates are going fast. Do contact me to find out whether I am available. 2012 bookings are going very well and I am currently taking bookings as far ahead as August.

How do I contact you?

You can email me on sam@samanthajonesphotography.co.uk, give me a call on 07786 314973 and check out my website www.samanthajonesphotography.co.uk.

Already married?

And if you are already married but fancy the idea of booking a “rock the frock” session, come and have a chat so that I can tell you more! Some examples of recent rock the frock sessions are here: rock the frock photoshoot in Surrey .

I have a new man in my life – meet {Alfie}

For those of you who know me personally, or who follow my updates on Facebook and Twitter, you may have seen that we have a new addition to the household … Alfie is a Tibetan Terrier who was born on 18 December 2010. He is growing by the day and has the hugest feet – good for walking on snow, apparently, as Tibetan Terriers were given to travellers as a good luck charm and for safety when they were traversing the snowy valleys.

Bringing a puppy into a household can be a fraught time – I’ve never had a dog before so I need to train myself as much as I need to train Alfie. He has already come with me on some photoshoots and is meeting lots of new people. He is an excitable little one, who loves to show his affection by biting … which worried me at first but now I realise that he is just saying “hello” and that it is normal for puppies. We will be going to puppy training because we all want to have a dog of whom we can be proud and not scared.

Anyway, here’s a pic of our new little man, who has already found his way into our hearts …

If you book a shoot with me or we arrange a meeting, do let me know if you like dogs … as Alfie may well be joining us!
